Here is a set of drawings that have lain in a research book for more than 10 years, the reason that I did them was in a university research project workshop – making our own brushes with the amazingly inventive American maker Bob Ebendorf. I made several brushes out of grasses, leaves and branches, picked on my morning dog walk. None survived the drawing session, shown below, in any state to be used again.
But these are the drawings that I made and they are completely unlike any of my other drawings – ever. the colour is Red ink and the single pages measure roughly A2 (26x36cms.) There are other maker’s brushes used as well, and in some I have drawn the brush with itself, then taken it for a ride over the whole page. I still find them exhilarating and teasingly inspirational.

Definitely exhilarating and inspirational.
Hi Maris, thanks!
I have always liked these pages in my work book simply because they are so unlike my work generally, but that is why we go to workshops I suppose, to experience new things. I thought I may eventually do some work from them but so far have have not been tempted and now Kantha stitching has me in its thrall!
I have just finished another stitched sky and about to post the development of it – just need to sift through the 6 weeks of images to show a fluent progression – rather than the halting unpicking reality.
